Although it’s a room rooted in function, the bathroom is the perfect space to flex your creativity. Bathroom design schemes should be built to last, but that doesn’t mean you need to keep dated finishes, fixtures or styles. There are endless ways to refresh your design (without a full remodel), whether with a new bathroom vanity. Playful wallpaper design or the addition of modern bathroom remodel decor. To inspire your next bathroom or powder room makeover. We asked our favorite interior designers and architects to share new bathroom trends that they’re loving this year.
1. Dusty Blues and Greens
I love a dusty green or blue bathroom. It really opens up the palette and allows you to work with so many more complementary hues
2. The Bath Tub As a Focal Point
A spa bathroom is always on trend. Bathrooms should serve as a respite from the outside world, a place to decompress and recharge.
3. All White Walls and Cabinetry
An all-white bathroom is always calming and in style, but adding natural touches to the space like wood mirrors and wicker baskets gives it that much-needed contrast to make it interesting and inviting.
4. Nature-Inspired Elements
I foresee natural wood tones and serene spaces being a key part of design in 2023. Incorporating exterior elements in the home with materials and organic features such as woods, concrete, plaster, rounded edges and earthy tones.
5. Spa-Like Bathrooms
This season, we’re really going to see a rise in what I like to call, ‘The New Statement Bathroom.’ This is a bathroom that makes me feel like I’ve been whisked away to a spa overlooking water. It means luxurious finishes (like natural stone and unlacquered brass), a large soaking tub, framed views bringing the outside in and cabinetry that looks and feels like you’d see in a high-end cocktail bar.
6. Dark Finishes
Darker colors are coming back. You’ll notice richer, warmer wood tones paired with dark, more saturated finishes. Lots of textures will be showing up in all ways.
7. Colorful Cabinetry
Unexpected colors can do marvels for a bathroom. The use of burnt sienna here adds a much-needed element of warmth while keeping the overall feeling of the bathroom minimal and elevated.
8. Stone Showers
Showers covered in stone slabs are easy to clean, as dirty grout is not a concern. Stone is a classic material and a statement on its own.
9. Gold Accents
Depending on the tone, gold goes with almost any color. However, it especially pairs well with neutrals. I personally love to use gold for light fixtures and cabinet hardware.
